As a tribute to her years as a contributor to the club and to recognize her incredible photographic talent, the executive decided to implement and with her permission, a Judy Daniels Ribbon of Excellence. This means that on each month we have Evaluation Night, should an image achieve a score of 5 Points or Greater than the average Evaluation Night image score , the maker will receive a Judy Daniels Ribbon of Excellence.

Notwithstanding these criteria, the minimum threshold shall be 27 points and the maximum 30 points as per the table below.  This ribbon is a very high honour and reflects the amazing photography of our past member and friend.

If The Average Score Is: JD Ribbon Threshold (Avg+5)
0 – 22 27 (The fixed minimum)
23 28
24 29
25 – 30 30 (The fixed maximum)

Other Awards

The Langley Camera Club participates in Outside Competitions sponsored through the Canadian Association for Photographic Art and/or individual camera clubs approximately a dozen times per season. All members are encouraged to participate and submit images for the selection process.

(Images that have been submitted to Inside Competitions may also be submitted for club entries for Outside Competitions.)

Members that have their image selected as part of the Club submission receive the score awarded to them from that competition. Members that submitted images for consideration but were not selected receive 10 points to acknowledge their participation in the competition.  Notwithstanding these scores received, in order to qualify for the award members must have at least one of their image submissions during the year selected to be part of a Club entry in an Outside Competition.

Each participating member’s scores from these Outside Competitions will be added together at the end of June.

The member whose Outside Competitions Aggregate Score is the highest will be awarded the LCC Outside Competition trophy and will receive a certificate; second through tenth place will receive a certificate.

This award is available to all members (excluding first year members) who submit images a minimum of 7 Evaluation Nights in each of the previous and current seasons.

Each member’s average score is calculated by dividing their aggregate score by the number of months in which images were submitted (minimum 7). The award will go to the person with the largest percent increase between their highest average score last season and their highest average score this season.

The member with the most improvement will be awarded the Most Improved Member trophy and will receive a certificate; second & third place will receive a certificate.

To be considered for this award, new members must have submitted images in at least six Evaluation Nights in their first ten consecutive Club months of membership commencing with the month in which they become an active member and ending in the current club year. Only the highest scoring image in each evaluation is tallied.

The average score is calculated by dividing their Aggregate Score for their first ten consecutive months of active membership by the number of those months in which images were submitted (minimum six). The award goes to the new member with the highest average score. 

The new member with the highest average score will be awarded the New Member Trophy and will receive a certificate, second and third place will receive a certificate
